My almost 2 year old dog has gotten an ear infection (yeast) over the past few months. Today I've been really trying to get to the root of the problem and seeing if there are any home remedies to help him considering we cannot afford the vet exam which is absolutely required to get ear drops. He is currently eating Dog Chow and has hot dogs as a treat.
I noticed this food has whole wheat corn and wheat grains as well as chicken by-product, etc.
He has scabs in his ear from scratching them so much, he has greasy fur directly in the middle of his ear canal with wax, ears stink and they're red. He is a very nervous dog so anytime we even try to lift his ear he will try to run away, and sometimes he will scratch and cry.
I'll also add - he definitely has the floppy ear going on.
